Our approach

Haringey Giving has been working with local statutory and community partners in order to avoid duplication and ensure that a wide reach is achieved across our borough's diverse communities.

This initiative is part of our wider Haringey COVID-19 Appeal and is part of our co-ordinated local response to COVID-19.

Please give generously to our emergency campaign – funds raised will be used specifically to support children and young people who are unable to access free school meals during this half-term and to supplement food provision more sustainably over the coming months for low income families, covering Christmas and Easter holidays too.
